A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.
The waitress asks them for their orders.
The man says, ‘A hamburger, fries and a coke,’ and turns to
the ostrich, ‘What’s yours?’
‘I’ll have the same,’ says the ostrich..
A short time later the waitress returns with the order ‘That
will be $9.40 please,’ and the man reaches into his pocket
and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says,
‘A hamburger, fries and a coke.’
The ostrich says, ‘I’ll have the same.’
Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.
This becomes routine until the two enter again. ‘The usual?’
asks the waitress.
‘No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad,’
says the man.
‘Same,’ says the ostrich.
Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, ‘That will be $32.62.’
Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and
places it on the table.
The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer.
‘Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up
with the exact change in your pocket every time?’
‘Well,’ says the man, ‘several years ago I was cleaning the attic
and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared
and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had
to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the
right amount of money would always be there….’
‘That’s brilliant!’ says the waitress. ‘Most people would ask for a million
dollars or something, but you’ll always be as rich as you want for as long
as you live!’
‘That’s right. Whether it’s a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the
exact money is always there,’ says the man..
The waitress asks, ‘What’s with the ostrich?’
The man sighs, pauses and answers, ‘My second wish was for a
tall chick with a big butt and long legs who agrees with everything I say.’
